Two weeks until the mhic. Shirts are being printed, awards are being made, door prizes coming in. Gravity tires on hand. Preparations in full swing. Please use the website to sign up if you are coming and have not done so yet.

This race is going to be awesome!

Nice! We've got the tires for the race, but we're not touching them until then. You guys will get more time on them than we have.

We're doing the final preparations on our side. Things are looking great. Expecting another 10+ to signup at or before the race based on what we've heard, so that will put us over 100 bodies. It's gonna be awesome!

Hi Guys,

Really looking forward to the race. The facility looks great.

Do you have any idea what time we will be done on Sunday? We are trying to figure out whether to share a rental car with Teru (Xenon), but he has to leave by 4:30pm on Sunday for the airport.

Thanks.-Bruce

Bruce,

If i had to guess at this point we'll be done somewhere around 3:30pm. So 4:30 would not work. Teru will need to leave early. So we'll have to let Mario know to try and arrange the mains appropriately so he can try and make his main.

The airport on a Sunday afternoon will be about a 35min drive.

I think 3:30ish is a reasonable expectation. We're dropping triple A's this year which should free up some time. It's hard for us to be 100% sure since we've got a lot more entries than years past, but we're cognizant of people needing to get out the door to make flights and do our best to move the program along quickly.

Plus, we have no idea on how to gauge how many people are coming that are not signed up.

I brought up the topic of TC bodies yesterday after racing and was unable to get a clear answer. Bitty Design has 2 new bodies the Nardo and MC10, unfortunately they have not been roar approved yet. Will we be allowing these 2 bodies or are we sticking with ROAR rules for all items roar specs, Motors (D3.5 exception), Bodies, Batteries, & ESC's?

If they are not roar approved, they are not legal. We had the same issue with the protoform Gianna last year. They were not yet approved, and we did not allow them.
